Representative Text

1 Source of life’s eternal spring,
Unto Thee my all I bring;
Consecrate this heart of mine,
Seal me, Lord, forever thine.
In the Rock no storm can move,
In Thy deep, unmeasured love,
From the waves that darkly roll,
In Thy light, O hide my soul.

Where temptation cannot harm me,
Nor the tempter’s pow’r alarm me;
From the waves that darkly roll,
In Thy light, O hide my soul.

2 Source of life’s eternal spring,
Thou whose name ‘tis joy to sing;
By Thine own almighty hand
Lead me thro’ this desert land.
Give me strength to do Thy will,
Grace to walk beside Thee still,
In Thine own appointed way,
Trusting on from day to day. [Refrain]
